      I'm hoping to use these to create a skid plate! 🤘

      My IPD skid plate bent out going over something and dragged on any obstruction something awful, and I had to pound it back in...it has a dent now around the mount on the driver's side...probably better this way, but the IPD skid plates on the P1 are flimsy as hell. Still better than nothing I suppose. My mechanic also put in some slightly longer bolts on the front and tightened them down with locking nuts...so they hand down and are solidly in place making it a cinch to install the skid plate over them with another stet of locking nuts from the bottom side of the skid plate, and it's done- no more finagling though the little space at the top to get the skid plate off or on.

      The Volvo plate you linked in your first post to FCP says it's $378.29, not the $334.99 you posted. Was it on sale back then? Anyway, here's the same part from Tasca for less http://www.tascaparts.com/oe-volvo/31269433 . I have a used Volvo plate that looks just like that. Not sure if I'm going to use it or not. The rivnuts that came with it are really beefy, pretty sure my rivnet tool isn't up to the task. Might need to have my mechanic install it.

      I haven't had one since I bought the car. #simplelife, but I also have an extra oil pan just in case so it's no skin off my nose.

      Six point socket screw is part number: 986063, but to answer your question the size is 5x20 (PF5x20).

      Not having installed any other but the IPD aluminium underbody cover plate, I can only recommend that one, which I bought on sale from IPD for about $150 about 12 months ago. It already has been scratched and gauged but not through, so the protection is very good.

      I know I can buy a replacement, the question is which one should I buy!

      There are 3 that I know of:

      1) IPD Aluminum Skid Plate 2) Volvo Aluminum Skid Plate 3) Volvo Skid Plate (Plastic)
      Does anyone have experience with any of them or advice of which is best?

      Thanks!

      The PO of my car replaced them with some regular hex head screws like you can find at Home Depot. It makes it more convenient since I don't need to bet out the torx sockets. Kind of wish I had done it to my other car years ago.
